April 2021 Roundup

Testing changes and sustaining the gains of your improvement project

Last month we helped you with starting a new improvement project. We explained how to choose the best change idea and define your aim statement, as well as how to select the members for your improvement team.


This month we go further and we show how you can easily test your changes with PDSA cycles. You'll see which steps you need to follow to write a PDSA cycle and how you can measure its success with the data you have collected.


We will also focus on a very important part of the improvement process - the implementation phase. We give you a helping hand to create your implementation plan so you can sustain the gains and incorporate them into your ‘business as usual’ processes.


And finally, independently from the outcome of your project, we show you how to analyse the results and learn from the experience, and what you need to do to close out your improvement project so also the others can learn from your work.
